F&F’s “Rough Riding”

Teddy, FDR: “same difference”! Or so it seemed to a less than studious Fox and Friends staffer. In a Presidential-contributions-to-veterans segment, when co-host Steve Doocy read the accomplishments of FDR, a picture of Teddy Roosevelt (the 26th President & FDR’s distant cousin) appeared on the screen.* However, Steve failed to notice the mistake since he was looking down at his notes.

Realizing the risible error, co-host Brian Kilmeade declared, “Wrong Roosevelt! Wrong Roosevelt!” Suddenly, Steve exclaimed, “That’s Teddy Roosevelt! That’s great.” Making light of the gaffe in his uniquely tortured rhetoric, Brian continued, “That’s Teddy, Teddy, his cousin: But Teddy gave away Eleanor at their wedding so Teddy was right to be there.” Wisely remaining silent, guest co-anchor Alisyn Camerota bit her tongue.

Greasing the skids! Few do it better than the F&F crew.

*F&F – 7:38 a.m. ET
